    I think that every one has their own way of growing iris ! I like to use 
fertilizer. Then have a friend that spreads the lime for me. when I raise the 
beds I have a five gallon bucket I mix pelletized lime and steamed bone meal 
50/50 then put 
about a half a cup per rizome and mix well into the soil. This seems to work 
well for 
me but my soil is not alkaline. The increase is very good and the size of the 
rizomes are big and not much rot. The rebloom was amazing.
